Former Indian skipper Mahendra Singh Dhoni on Saturday turned 37 and warm birthday wishes poured in for him not just from the cricket fraternity but also from the fans all around the world.
Dhoni, who made his international debut in 2004 in an ODI against Bangladesh, has so far played 500 international matches for India becoming only the third Indian cricketer after Sachin Tendulkar and Rahul Dravid to do so.
Playing his 500th international match, the veteran warhorse etched another record against his name as he becomes the first player in the world to play a maximum number of T20 International matches without being adjudges LBW.
However, Team India were unable to give a victory gift to Dhoni as they lost the second T20I of the ongoing three-match series against England at Sophia Gardens in Cardiff. Dhoni contributed 32 runs (24 balls) in India’s 148 which England chase down with five wickets in hand.
Here’s the celebrities who wished Dhoni on his birthday :
